  • Having lived here for 4 years I can say it's definitely OK. It is getting better all the time, restaurants and pubs are always improving (Gipsy Road area great). There are also plans for a new pool and leisure centre near the station, a new school has been recently opened and Crystal Palace is only 5 mins away. I have always felt safe, day or night, and there is a sense of community in the area also.

  • I have lived there for 6 years and it is very safe. My neighbours are very friendly and we all talk to each other. It has a very nice community feel to it. It also surrounded by great parks like, Crystal Palace, Dulwich & Streathem Common

  • I have lived in West Norwood for about 20 years. There is a good community feel in the street and surrounding areas that I live in. There are good parks such as Tivoli and Norwood, fantastic transport links into the city and beyond. I recently travelled to Warwick Avenue travelling via west norwood and clapham junction. Arrived in approximately 40 minutes! The high street has a growing variety of shops.And the council have just given the go ahead for a new leisure centre close to west norwood train station which will have a 25m swimming pool along with other facilities. I have always felt safe walking around both day and night

  • Hi, We would suggest that you get in touch with local estate agents in order to get some background about the area. You can search for agents using the ‘find agents’ tab on the top of the Zoopla Page. We hope this helps.
